Girl Found Dead in Houston Hotel Room Hours After High School Prom
(HOUSTON) -- Police in Houston are investigating the death of a 17-year-old high school girl after her body was found in a hotel room hours after prom.
Investigators say Jacqueline Gomez and her boyfriend booked a room at the Hyatt Hotel, which also was the location of the MacArthur High School prom.
Gomez's boyfriend reportedly called 911 after he realized she wasn't breathing.
